It's a liberal dose of Americana for this New Sounds program. Listen to music from "Gloryland," the second foray into folk music and spirituals for the early music a cappella group Anonymous 4. Also, there's music from the Turtle Island String Quartet and tunes from TISQ fiddler Darol Anger and the Republic of Strings as well. Plus, we'll hear from William Duckworth, the Wayfaring Strangers, the soundtrack to “Oh Brother Where Art Thou?” and more.

Just before John says what's going to be on the program the following evening (after the fifth listed cut), there's a brief music bed that's in the jazz genre -- would you please post what the group and cut are? I'd love to hear more of it. Thanks.
Really enjoyed this show.
